Over the last few months, the company has claimed to sell thousands of cars in Pakistan. And to celebrate, its top administration has cut cakes in different cities, including Faisalabad, Sialkot, and Islamabad.
It is pertinent to mention that MG Pakistan has been selling CBU units only as it has not started local assembly/manufacturing yet. However, it seems that it is now facing issues in delivering cars on time. And people who have booked the vehicle are not happy about it.
As per our sources, MG Motors has overbooked the cars. Taking money, in many cases, even with full payment up front and then not able to deliver, will only make things worse. We know it’s a worldwide issue with the pandemic, but the companies must be transparent with the buyer and don’t hold on to their money with excuses.
Currently, there is NO clarity. There is also news that CBU booking is closed, but the dealers are still taking bookings of MG HS, and neither dealer nor buyer knows what he will be getting.. a CBU, a CKD, and when. This ambiguity causes more confusion among the consumers. The sources further said that the company will now deliver CKD units, but in this car, the customer will get its car at least after one whole year, if MG starts production today.
Furthermore, there are reports that the MG cars are being sold on ‘ON Money’ at different dealerships across the country. As per reports, the MG buyers are angry over it because they have booked the vehicle with full payment but can’t get it; rather, they are available on the premium at different dealerships.
